Located on Covent Garden’s Maiden Lane, Cinnamon Bazaar, the latest restaurant from Vivek Singh, has now opened its doors. Inspired by the hustle and bustle of ancient and modern bazaars from around the world.
Spread across two floors, the restaurant is coloured in brass, blue and greens. Organic, natural materials, reflective of historical India, feature throughout the dining rooms alongside vibrant painted walls, Indian patterned wallpapers and illuminating hanging lanterns.
An innovative cocktail list has been developed by award-winning mixologist, Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan, best known for the famed White Lyan bar and the reputable Dandelyan.
All Day Dining
Early risers and lazy brunchers can choose Indian parathas Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a firm favourite in the sub-continent since the 12th century. The warm, homemade flatbreads are stuffed with fillings including Bollyflower Cheese (cauliflower and Keen’s Cheddar) and Meetha (coconut and jaggery brown cane sugar). Traditional kedgeree and spicy masala omelettes are also available.
For lunch or dinner there are snacks of crab bonda – Calcutta spiced crab and beetroot in chickpea batter; or chicken haleem with sourdough toast.
Bazaar Plates include smaller and larger dishes of Kabuli kofta in fenugreek sauce; Malabar boatman’s haddock curry with kokum and green mango chutney; grilled aubergine with sesame peanut crumble, labna and toasted buckwheat; and double cooked pork belly’koorg’ style.
There will also be a signature Chaat menu, where guests will be able to customise their very own traditional street food snacks. Chaat is a key feature of traditional Indian bazaars, with vendors often employed by jewellers to offer their customers chaat snacks whilst they wait for their jewellery to be made. Signature chaat fillings include Papdi chaat: crisp wheat, tangy tamarind, yoghurt and chickpea vermicelli; and watermelon chaat: pressed watermelon, amaranth seeds, date chutney and masala cashew nut.
